Fantastic bike

This is my first road bike after moving on from a hybrid. I have found the transition a lot easier than I thought, and really like the range of hand positions using the drop handlebars. The build quality is excellent. The bike is very light, fast and stable. Despite doing a lot of research, Tredz gave me the best advice. Their team is excellent. I couldn't get on with the supplied toe-clip pedals, but found it easy enough to pedal with ordinary flats for now (getting clipless SPD SL soon). I'm sure this bike is great for beginners and experts alike. A really good bike.

Giant have really pushed the boat out here to provide such a quality product for such a great price. Smooth ride, and fantastic speed. Teamed up with Tredz to construct the bike which has been put together with great care. 10 out of 10 product. Very pleased.
